This is a celebration of seven remarkable women who have inspired millions worldwide. Against unfavorable odds, they excelled not only in their respective fields, but became aspirational role models. In addition to being phenomenally talented, most were tough and aggressive, and all were fearless and tenacious.
All the pieces. including the mannequins, are wholly or in part made of paper-tissue, grocery bags, heavy duty watercolor, kraft and paper mache. The paper is first painted, then stitched or glued in place.
The instillation took two years to create. I am extremely grateful for the support of Mary Yun, Zara Usman, Lisa Papademetriou and my dear husband Bob Belkin
